Why is Papa John's complaining about the $8 million

it will cost him to provide health care coverage for employees yet they are giving away 2 million pizzas which sell for around $10 dollars a pizza ($20 million). Papa John's is a billion dollar buisness. Please explain how they are justified in complaining about this

You go build your own business. He has the right to complain about forced costs to his company if he chooses. Freedom of speech and all.

It's his business. He can do as he pleases.

Why are you worried about how he runs the business he created?

Why are you complaining about the way someone in private enterprise chooses to run his own business?

Marketing is a regular business expense. If you think they are not making a profit from the marketing campaign I can't help you.

When did they give away 2 million pizzas and why was I not notified?

Exactly.

If the OP is so stupid that he doesn't understand marketing, then he doesn't need to be posting here.

What a fricking fail of a thread.

Did you really just ask this question?

Think really hard now, and try to figure out which one of these two things will actually bring in new business.

Giving away pizzas is an advertisement stunt to get people to buy more pizza. Papa John's knows pizza. That is what their business model is built around. The pizzas probably only cost them $2-3 so the total cost is probaly closer to $5 million.

Health care costs are a straight increaase on doing business with no benefit. Papa Johns only earned $60M last year. So you basically just reduced their profit by 12%.

Pizza is the numero uno profit making fast food industry that exists. The ingredients and cost of the labor to make one are the cheapest that exists. All of the other corporations will be adjusting the prices upward ASAP.

Dear alex, don't forget to bitch about the millions of dollars in advertising it cost to get Peyton Manning to hawk that deal on national television, too.

Sorry you didn't get that pony you were promised as a kid.

Let's not forget that it will cause their suppliers to have to raise costs (the US ones), cutting deeper into their already small profit margins. This is t just about Papa John's havig to pay more to provide healthcare (which will kill his franchises, which is why he is really complaining).

You're right. If there wasnt regulation companies would be hiring under 16yrs old and paying less than minimum wage. those rules were implemented for a reason as was this one. its easily affordable for the company and should be enforced as much as the other rules.

So you think Papa John's cost to make a pizza is the same as what the pizza sells for?

You flunked Business Administration 1001, didn't you?

so your telling me they wouldnt make a profit over 8 mill. pizzas dont cost that much to make. i thought that was common sense that they would easily make over an 8 mil profit

quote:

papa johns made 60 mil last year


their total revenue in 2010 was 1.26 billion
